The WP4.5EX features an AC Motor eliminating brush servicing and periodic maintenance
Miretti Americas has taken a major step forward with a significant investment in the latest EX technologies to provide efficiency, modern solutions and advanced designs that meet the needs of today's industries. Miretti has been a market leader in the explosion protection of material handling, oilfield and coal mining equipment to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. The company, founded in 1973, has a global footprint with manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific and works closely with all leading manufacturers of forklift trucks and associated systems.

Miretti Americas continues the evolution of EX technology and brand innovation as it introduces its new WP4.5EX unit to the market place. Miretti's WP4.5EX is its first EX walkie pallet truck in the market with an AC Motor. AC technology eliminates the need to service brushes, to schedule downtime for repair of wear items and requires no periodic maintenance, providing increased productivity and reliability of the unit.  

A tight turning radius and compact footprint provide for safer and more productive operational performance

The shortened, mid-mounted handle, brings operator closer to truck increasing visibility and maneuverability
The WP4.5EX combines a tight turning radius and a compact footprint for a safer and more productive operational performance. Designed with a shortened, mid-mounted handle, the operator is closer to the truck increasing visibility and maneuverability. The handle is ergonomically designed to provide the operator with a firm-controlled grip increasing control of the unit, all while reducing wrist movement during operation. Lift, lower, and horn push buttons are strategically placed so that the operator can have easy access without having to release the hand from the grip.

The introduction of the WP4.5EX; our most compact EX walkie pallet to date, marks a milestone in Miretti's culture of innovation as we are now also able to offer the EX conversion of compact walkie pallets. Miretti recognizes that size and maneuverability are important factors when choosing EX equipment that is why we are excited to introduce the WP4.5EX and offer the EX conversion of compact units.  As with all our products, our mission is to provide our customers with modern, ergonomically friendly EX units that provide peace of mind once placed into the field.  We combine our explosion proof expertise with the OEM's quality and modern designs resulting in best-in-class explosion proof units.  Our conversions do not alter the operation of the OEM unit nor do we compromise the footprint of the unit.  The only difference, in the end, is a new explosion proof designation.

Miretti's engineers carefully work with the end users' operations team to uncover the conditions in which the equipment is used.  From here we carefully design solutions that best fit the working environment while not impeding the operator from performing their job duties efficiently.  Partnering with the best OEM units in the market, Miretti prides itself in providing innovative EX technology while keeping the OEM's operation and technology intact so the unit continues to provide the same reliable service as intended in a non-EX standard version.

All Miretti conversions are tested, certified and listed by a Nationally and Internationally Recognized Testing Laboratory in accordance with US, UL 583 standards, and the EU ATEX standards for our international division.  Not a single unit can be sent into the field without a certified EX label on it.  Our vehicle conversions have been in operation in the US for over 6 years and counting without incident.  Thanks to consistent research focusing on new technologies and innovative solutions, Miretti Global annually protects over 700 diesel and electric vehicles, 300 engines and enclosures, and upwards of 200 vehicles for mines and tunnels worldwide.
